The Hawthornes were on a road trip from October 4 - 17.
Here are some pics from October 14.

Did you go to the top? Grandfather is one of my favorite places. During my years at ASU my friends and I spent a great deal of time crusing the Parkway and exploring the back roads of Watauga County.

TT - We were only passing through this time, as we have so many times.

We have been there before and I've blogged about it.

Yes, we have been to the top. And we've crossed the bridge.

I remember looking at the sign for the people limit on the bridge. And I remember seeing people who could be said to be 2 or 3. It was frightening.

I guess Lea wouldn't be venturing out on this.
I'll try to find those pics.

And Mr. Hawthorne will agree with me here that the bathroom facilities (portapotties) were the most disgusting we have ever seen in our lives. EVER!

Facilities are vastly improved with construction of a new museum building and "top shop" at the summit. Ironically, I was there this afternoon at the end of an extra long weekend in the area.

TT- I'd love to go back again and stop. As I recall, we had a long drive up in a lot of traffic.
